    “Lovely cottage, with everything you need.”

    Hosts were wonderful, and the eggs from their beautiful chickens were a treat (and delicious)! The cottage was in a perfect quiet location for us, nestled away but not at all far from Leominster and Ludlow with lots of beautiful and interesting places to visit right from the doorstep. Thank you Ed, Nena and Jo for a delightful stay, we will definitely be back!
